dc.description.abstract Aquaculture has been identified _as a technology which contributes to rural development through improved nutrition, employment creation, and the use of otherwise underutilised resources. A review of the literature and of experiences in rural aquaculture demonstrates, however, a weakness in the evaluation of decision-making criteria in regards to the adoption of the technology. The framework suggested characterises the complex relationship between the technology source and recipient. This relationship defines the effectiveness of technology transfer of aquaculture projects in rural artisanal fishing communities. This research demonstrates that technology transfer of aquaculture is more than a matter of biophysical and economic factors. Its adoption is directly tied to the community perception of the potential benefits, previous contacts of this community with outside intervention, and the quality of the relationship between the source institution and the community recipient. en
